Flash Fiction Fun with Words Provided by Online Friends June 23rd, 2017

My kid-friendly story with a couple of adult innuendos. Many of the word contributors this week were pre-teens at a swim party!

In Bobby’s wonky imaginative world, he spends his ruminant day lost over the rainbow, doing a clumsy tango and canoolding with seventeen iglets. His world is free of Hepatitis or any virus. There is no annealing of a wing nut for an explosive mangonel or torpedo, and no stinky socks. His extraordinary estival world has a petaloid dragon and no lack of food. Everyone has soda, blueberries, doughnuts, beignets, and a lollipop. The sparkling water of the ocean has no pirate, but is full of paddlefish, surströmming, a guppy, and a nice hippopatamous. There’s no one to emasculate, hornswoggle or bumfuzzle him. No conjecture by a baudy comb-over oompa loompa. A member of the house of Slytherin performs prestidigitation with a hanger, an animal and a flower to end his day. Everything is wonderful in Bobby‘s world.
